Goodbye winter and hello spring! One of our favorite spring events is The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden’s sixth annual Food & Wine Festival, and it’s coming up March 23 – 25. This year’s event, presented by Dallas Southwest Osteopathic Physicians, takes place during the height of Dallas Blooms, so there will be lots of beautiful sights to see!
Almost sold out, this popular food event features an evening of the top local chefs serving their delicious dishes served with a selection of wines and beer.
Stick around for more festivities on March 25 and 26 at the Dallas Arboretum’s Garden Market featuring several dozen local vendors showcasing their products for sale, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the garden. The garden market is included with paid admission to the garden.
Food and Wine Festival – March 23 from 7-9pm
Garden Market — March 25 and 26 from 10:30am-3pm
